Big Exhibition Challenge Today Vs. UMass Minutemen

This afternoon the Varsity Reds will try to withstand the Mass Attack when they visit the UMass Minutement at 4 pm AST.  This marks the 3rd straight year UNB and UMass have clashed in exhibition play.  Last year the V-Reds pulled off a 3-2 win, avenging a 6-0 obliteration the year before.

The UMass Athletics website has a great write-up on this year's Minutemen team.  Looks like a lot of turnover since last year, so expect their new recruits to be eager to make an impression against the Varsity Reds in their first showing.  The game takes place at the Minutemen practice rink, and looks like we'll be completely dependent on Twitter updates for this one.

FYI...in the pre-season Hockey East poll voted on by the coaches UMass was ranked 9th (out of 10), Vermont was 6th, and Providence was 10th...so UNB certainly isn't facing the stronger HE teams this season.
